I stumbled upon this gem recently, after getting side tracked from a link that my mother-in-law shared to me the other day (Thanks Lynne!). I thought it was worth a share, and I hope it brightens your week. Welcome to the changing season, sending lots of love your way...
On the surface of the world right now there is war and Violence and things seem dark But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening underground An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called to a higher light It is a silent revolution From the inside out From the ground up
You won’t see us on the T.V. You won’t read about us in the newspaper You won’t hear about us on the radio
We don’t seek any glory We don’t wear any uniform We come in all shapes and sizes Colors and styles
Most of us work anonymously We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture of the world Cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands
You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice We go undercover We remain behind the scenes It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit But simply that the work gets done
Occasionally we spot each other in the street We give a quiet nod and continue on our way so no one will notice.
During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs But behind the false storefront, at night is where the real work takes place
Some call us the ‘Conscious Army’ We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and hearts We follow, with passion and joy Our orders from the Central Command The Spiritual Intelligence Agency
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking: Poems Hugs Music Photography Movies Kind words Smiles Meditation and prayer Dance Social activism Blogs Random acts of kindness
Our work is slow and meticulous Like the formation of mountains It is not even visible at first glance And yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries to come
Love is the new religion of the 21st century
You don’t have to be a highly educated person Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it It comes from the intelligence of the heart Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings
Be the change you want to see in the world Nobody else can do it for you
We are now recruiting Perhaps you will join us Or already have. All are welcome… The door is open
